I have an XL Egg and up to this point I'll make the main dish (meat) on the egg and everything else in the kitchen. I'm looking to do the sides on the Egg as well. So this Sunday, I plan on doing a couple slabs of baby back ribs, a cast iron skillet of baked mac'n cheese or bbq green beans and another cast iron skillet of cornbread.
I guess my question that I'm looking to verify is this, the ribs will probably be 5 hours at 250. The cornbread calls for 20 minutes at 350, and probably around the same for the man'n cheese.
Is it as simple as cooking the ribs then tenting and holding while the other two cook? I can do a tiered setup, but that doesn't help with different temp cooks. Guess this is as good as a reason as any to get another egg.
Do most of you cook the ribs, then cook the side dishes afterwards? Just trying to schedule and stage my weekend cook. TIA.
